Very tasty meal, a wide range on the menu and excellent service. I had the fish and chips, the batter was lovely and crisp and the cod was delicious, the chips where perfect and it was served with choice of garden or mushy peas and tartare sauce. My husband had the cottage pie served with a vegetable selection, he relished... More

Very disappointed with the afternoon tea, took my mother for her birthday. Now, I am a bit of an afternoon tea connoisseur, and can I just point out to you that you do not serve afternoon tea on dinner plates!! Too much food in much too big portions to be called afternoon tea, big "butties", they served us sandwiches on... More

Took my mother for afternoon tea and it couldn't have been better. Wonderfully fresh food, delicious and plenty of it. Excellent service. We had more food than we could manage but there was no problem in boxing it up for us take home. Lovely.

Every year we visit the idle of man we make sure we go to this restaurant. Always friendly, food is excellent. There are a couple dotted about the island. All have high standards of cleanliness and good food.

They really do need to 'update' their appearance! Looking from the outside one would never entertain going in. Even the pharmacy is much more inviting than the restaurant! Next problem, you go inside the restaurant and you get more of the same. They have redecorated in the past couple of years, but the decorator must have been in his/her 80's.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, you got it totally right. Don't change anything it was lovely. Even down to a bowl of crisps with our pre dinner drinks. Well done Harbour Lights Ramsey!

We had a warm welcome and good service throughout the meal. We had the Manx scallops with ginger chilli and soy sauce and monkfish dish with the same ginger chilli soy sauce. I expected more spice less soy but the meal was still enjoyable. A recommended visit.

Don't let the exterior stop you going in, hidden in a boring little shopping square it's a little gem venture inside and enjoy good home cooked food from fresh ingredients comprehensive wine list to support the food on offer here

Opened in 2006 after the success of our Peel restaurant, Harbour Lights Ramsey is the largest in our family of restaurants, easily capable of seating up to 50 guests. Located in St Pauls Square in the centre of Ramsey it is just a short walk from the busy Harbour and Town.Ramsey favourites include our famous french onion soup and Welsh rarebit with locally smoked salmon. Also be sure to try our fantastic afternoon tea (bring a big appetite) complete with fresh from the oven scones and homemade Victoria sponge. After six o’clock Harbour Lights transforms into a friendly evening restaurant with great home cooked food and friendly service. Try the Lobster spaghetti. Harbour Lights Ramsey is fully licensed with an extensive list of beers and wines, many of which are exclusive to us.
